SKAMPER KAMPERS RANGER XL: $10,500

Camper Trailer Australia - - BUDGET TOURING -

While most of our campers in this re­view just scrape in un­der the $20,000 line, the Skamper Kam­per Ranger XL is way un­der. What’s more, you get a lot of camper for your dol­lars, and that’s why the Ranger line re­mains the com­pany’s top sell­ing trailer af­ter many years.

Syd­ney-based Skamper Kampers has carved a solid space in the mar­ket­place through con­stantly up­grad­ing its of­fer­ings. The side-fold soft­floor Ranger has re­cently been ex­tended to the all-bells-and-whis­tles XL model. The all-gal­vanised and alu­minium body and chas­sis will never look sad and worn or suf­fer from rust or paint chips. It’s sturdy and ba­sic, so will see you through a lot of tough travel.

The sus­pen­sion is dual shock trail­ing arm, with a longer draw­bar for added front stor­age for a fridge box while re­tain­ing the ball weight at 80-90kg. At 910kg Tare it’s a lot bet­ter than most and its ATM of 1400kg gives it a rea­son­able load ca­pac­ity.

The ba­sic 9ft (2780mm) tent is great for fam­i­lies but can be ex­tended to 12ft (3780mm) for $500 ex­tra, and the awning room comes with all walls and a floor.

The kitchen is a tail­gate mounted stain­less steel unit with bench ex­ten­sion, and elec­tri­cally you get a sin­gle 100Ah bat­tery but no mains charger or so­lar in­put point.

Price is $10,500 plus on-road costs; not a bad deal at all.
